Christine Bond was awarded a $2,500 grant for the development of her ‘One Mile Dam Animal Welfare Project’, a dog management project which aimed to improve the health and wellbeing of companion animals within indigenous town camps in the Darwin region. The grant allowed Christine to implement de-sexing and vaccination programs and to assist community members to care for their animals, by engaging with other organisations to obtain funding to keep her work going in the future. The project has successfully provided resources and increased awareness of animal welfare in targeted communities.
